MUMBAI:  SBI, the country’s largest bank, posted its highest-ever quarterly profit at Rs 9,114 crore, a 41% YoY growth, in Q4 on the back of higher net interest income, which grew 15.3% year-on-year to Rs 31,198 crore. However, both numbers missed Street estimates, dragging down the stock by almost 5% to Rs 440.5 at closing.

Domestic net interest margin (NIM), a key profitability measure, grew 29 bps on-year but was flat sequentially. Operating profit grew just 0.08% year-on-year but rose 6.45% sequentially to Rs 19717 crore.
The figure that stood out was the 11% loan growth to Rs 28.19 lakh crore in Q4 from the year-ago quarter, driven by retail, personal loans (15.11% YoY) and foreign office advances (15.42% YoY). Home loans, nearly 23% of the bank’s domestic advances grew by 11.54%.“We should continue to see the loan growth we have in the past both in corporate and retail,” said Dinesh Khara, chairman, SBI.  

Deposits grew 10% to Rs 40.51 lakh crore with low cost or CASA deposits up 7.78% at Rs 17.75 lakh crore. Loan loss provisions at Rs 3,262 crore were down 67% YoY but up 5% sequentially. Asset quality improved with the gross non-performing asset ratio declining 101 basis points (1.01 percentage) YoY and 53 bps sequentially to 3.97%. The net non- performing asset ratio declined 24% yoy and 19% sequentially to 1.02%.

On the growth in NIM amid a turning interest rate cycle, Khara said the bank would be impacted positively as nearly 75% of its loan book was linked to the MCLR and external benchmarks like the repo rate. “The lending rate would rise first as they are linked to MCLR and EBLR and the deposit rate would move up with a lag, benefiting in terms of NIMs.”
